I've also seen hotspots with c-mount lenses but possibly this was down to the extension tubes I was using.

I think hot spots are less of a problem with false colour IR (it's a problem with the IR part of the image) but chromatic aberration can be an issue with wider wavelength images.
Interesting, thanks.
